economic security, education and child health. and provide policy recommendations to improve the outcomes in these areas. following the release of the state of american child report, senator dodd and senator bob casey called on first focus and translates great patriotic report card to provide a holistic picture of children's unmet needs in america and policy suggestion on how to meet those needs. so one of the things when we think about this report is we -- i have four kids and i went back to school night, in the past few weeks and i figured out that my kids it created about 300 times a year, with its tests, quizzes, homework assignments, plus all the testing that are required by national policy. so, you know, no child left behind, et cetera. so 300 times we assess kids to you. so what we thought about it was how about how we all as a nation are doing on kids. so what's our report on how we are faring for kids? so this is a chance to turn that around and great ourselves. copies of the report are available, as you all know and also on our website. our grades are not accessing a particular

heard fissured the university of texas at austin, the affirmative action policies in higher education. abigail fisher was denied admission to the university of texas at austin in 2008. fischer sued, arguing that racial minorities with worse credentials were accepted ahead of her because she was white. she contend that the schools use of of race in nations violates the u.s. constitution's guarantee of equal protection. a previous court ruling allows race to be one factor considered to achieve diversity. this is an hour and 20 minutes. >> well, i get to say that this is case of love and 345, fisher of the of texas at austin. and you get to say -- >> general suter trained me too well. chief justice and members of the court, may i please the court. the essential issue here is whether the university of texas at austin and can carry its burden of proving that its use of race as an nation plus factor and the consequent denial of equal treatment, which is the central mandate of equal protection clause to abigail fisher met the two test of strict scrutiny, which are applicable. >> before we ge
, that we actually had a formula for success in this country. one, we educate our people up to and beyond what the technology was, so they can get the most out of it. whether it was universal secondary education, and then it was universal post secondary education. second, we have the world's best infrastructure. roads, railroads, third, we have the world's most immigration policy. so we get the most energy etic and talented im-- energetic and talented immigration. fourth, we have the best rules. lastly, we have the most government-funded research. we push the balance on science and technology, so our best innovators are here. in education, we now, well, roughly 30% of high school students drop out of high school. we used to ld the world in college graduates. we no longer do that. on infrastructure, according to the american society of civil engineers, we are now $2 trillion in deficits in terms of infrastructure. a great education, and get the hell out of our country. we are fighting on each one of these issues that are so vital to our greatest strength. i don't think we can remedy this .
the educational experience of all pupils. >> caller: that's good. i guess it goes back to the case the was deemed moot anyway, but the fact of the matter is when you are laying on that table and you are about to have brain surgery, it doesn't matter what color the surgeon is. i don't care if he is black, white, it doesn't make any difference. the fact of the matter is if they were granted admission to school simply based on the fact of their skin color, that in itself is discriminatory. >> host: okay. carroll. oklahoma city. independent. good morning. >> caller: good morning. i would say that i hope [inaudible] they don't intervene because that affirmative action of white women versus african-american women for jobs and positions and i think it is being used in that respect. hopefully the supreme court will step down and allow it to continue as it is. >> host: okay. new hampshire. the democratic call. good morning, now three. what are your thoughts? >> caller: i just think it's unfortunate that today we need this kind of law we. look at the ayaan to leave the unemployment rate on its higher among
on banks and insurance companies. we cannot got our investments on education, clean energy, research, technology. that is not a plan to grow the economy. that is not change. we have been there. we have tried that. we are not going back. we are moving forward. that is why i am running for a second term as president of the united states. [applause] look -- we have got a different view about how you bring jobs and prosperity to america. the strong economy does not trickle down from the top. it grows from a thriving middle- class, and folks working hard to get into the middle-class. i think it is time our tax code stopped rewarding companies that ship jobs overseas. let us reward small businesses and manufacturing here in ohio, products made in america. that is the choice in this election. i believe we can create more jobs by controlling more of our own energy. after 30 years of inaction, we raised fuel standards. by the middle of the next decade, your cars and trucks would go twice as far on a gallon of gas. today, the u.s. is less dependent on foreign oil than at any time in two decade
this half seriously, half tongue in cheek-- i'd like to see arne duncan, secretary of education, be put in charge of middle east policy. because i tnk what really neeto be moving toward this there is a kind of race formula. >> rose: we continue looking at foreign policy issues in the campaign with david sanger of "new york times" and richard haass in the council on foreign relations. >> he basically laid out a conditional foreign policy. saying "look, the era where we give aid to you all and you act as you see it is over. we will work with you but only so long as if you meet us halfway, whether it's protecting our diplomatic missions, the way you eatwomen, grls and minorities, your foreign policy against israel and terrorism." i think that's an important statement and i think it's one that people in both parties should be able to support. >> he wants to portray president obama has an outlier in american foreign policy. in fact, one of the foreign policy advisors made the point that president obama in his view had departed from 70 years of bipartisan agreement, an agreement in which you
. it is the people in the middle, the independents, that have to get educated on the way they vote. and not be swayed by these negative ads and all the money put into these ads. hopefully, they will study the issues and realize the average person out there is supported by the democrats and not the rich republicans. host: let's hear from a republican from california, good morning. how affective do think political ads are? caller: think it is about finding a balance between the pacs and the candidates. i have a lot of friends to think the negative ads go too far. when they actually attack the candidate with the facts, i think they are effected. host: looking back at this "new york daily news" story - she's a single mother and one of the undecided voters. neil, fort lauderdale, independent college. caller: i'm not really an independent in view of the silly stuff going on. i fancied myself as a political agnostic. i believe that political campaign ads are effective if one has been in bed. -- inept. one can clearly know when one is being duped. the lady called from florida rick berg -- referred to indepen
and accountability. i'm talking especially about his education reform and welfare reform and his police reforms. when they didn't work, their answer was always more money. but we have learned from experience the governments must focus on product that comes out of an agency, not on the tax revenue that goes into an agency. [applause] in new york city we have seen how accountability and innovation has led to transformation. in public safety, public education and public assistance. crime in new york city is down more than 30% compared to a decade ago and high school graduations are up 40% and welfare rolls are up 25%. that didn't just happen because i spend more money. it happened because accountability and innovation has become an integral part of the work. it's not easy. it never is. they will always be doomsayers. i also know that tough problems are not solved by an waving a magic wand and charting the right course rather than the easy course takes courage to the and i don't have any doubt that david cameron has the courage of the convictions and i believe that he is charting the right course from br
was an outspoken advocate for girls' education rights and had been critical of the taliban. >> a new flare-up in the increasingly value it will slow down or showdown between turkey and syria. according to the reporting of reuters, turkey scrambled two fighter planes to the border with syria after a syrian military helicopter bombed a syrian town on that border. we cannot independently confirm this. this comes amid growing tensions between the two nations. yesterday, the prime minister of turkey said that a syrian passenger plane that his air force intercepted was carrying russian made military equipment and ammunition. russia reported it was only legal radar parts. russia, of course, is one of syria's remaining allies. >> who won and who lost the vice presidential debate. it depends on who you ask. our political panel weighs in on that next. the guy would flew into the united states carrying a small arsenal had a court date today. we will tell you what else the prosecution found they say is especially troubling in that suitcase. that's coming up.

and create jobs and helping environments. we do a tremendous amount for education and veterans. we have hired, and if you're a veteran in this room thank you very much for serving this country, we have hired 4800 veterans this year in the last 18 months or so. there is this thing called 100,000 jobs which we help starting hired 28,000 veterans and we have done 4500 ourselves. while other people are talking, we are doing. before this program we will do 1000 so we try to participate and to me it's all the same thing, healthy vibrant company, makes it all possible. the dying company, now been it is possible. i will put it in that same thing by the way, people say as an employee or shareholder if i don't make customers happy there is nothing else. if our employees don't do a good job -- it's all important to me. i try to run a fair profit, take care of your own people in your clients. let me go back to the mistake issue one more time. here's a question for you all. we have something like $15 billion in exposure in derivatives and hedging and bouncing around. you could easily tell me get it down.
social media activism supporting education for girls, something as simple as that. well, there's been condemnation of this attack and support for the teenager has been growing from washington to the united nations, around the world. reza sayya is joining us live from -- you have been all over this story talking to the doctors and the family medicine. how is she doing? what is the update? >> reporter: well, doctors say she's in critical condition. we've also spoken to the uncle within the past hour. he's saying that doctors are now hopeful, that she's out of danger, but the next 24 to 36 hours are going to be critical. this is the period after operation yesterday. of course, there's been an outpouring of emotion for this young girl. the last time we saw this kind of outpouring was probably 2007 when the former prime minister was assassinated, but now here we're talking about a 14-year-old girl. this is the kind of impact she's had on many here, and probably the impact has been strongest in pakistan's lass rooms. >> and you visited actually the school islamabad there today. tell us abou
of education came up last week several times in the debate. i know this is an issue as a state legislature that you have worked a lot on. >> it is the arizona state legislature sadly is known for being the state that has cut education the most the deeper per capita over the last several years, so arizona schools are struggling, and i teach at arizona state university -- >> bill: oh, wow. >> i have been teaching there for ten years now. before they was a social worker at an elementary school. so this is a really important issue for me. my own story, i think informs why it is important to me. i was homeless when i was a kid, and it was through public education, pell grants academic scholarships that i was able to make it to the middle class and in arizona we're struggling to keep that high-quality education system, and this is a top issue in our race. my opponent wants to eliminate the department of education which would get rid of pell grants. it would eliminate after ford loans, work study program withes, and cut close to a billion dollars of funding from arizona sch

that can pass through metal detectors. he voted against the department of education. he voted against funding for meals on wheels for seniors. he voted against a holiday for martin luther king. he voted against a resolution calling for the release of nelson mandela in south africa. it's amazing to hear him criticize my record or john kerry's . >> his record speaks for itself and it's not very distinguished. host: we are talking about vice- presidential debates with tonight's debate in danville, ky. what matters? and you saw a moment from 2004 and from our archives. if your interested in watching that and other moments, c- span.org. professor, tonight when viewers are watching the split screen of the debate and they see vice president joe biden and a younger paul ryan, what will the impact been? in the shot from 2004, you get the split screen dynamic, but tonight people will get that. calguest: the split screen is very significant in terms of the debate. when obama and running scared off, the split screen did a lot of damage to obama. it was not necessarily what obama said, but what pe
either because they are frustrated or because they want to get more training or education. some people are finding jobs. economists have looked at different calculations of which is the better factor -- the bigger factor, or people dropping out or getting more education and training and my understanding is that there are equal roles being played by each for spirit -- each force. but there are definitely some dropping out. some of that is the baby boom generation starting to retire. it may not be a "dropping out," but people choosing to retire and leave their jobs. some older people may have lost their jobs and cannot find new ones and are taking early social security benefits. there is some of that. host: mr. r doane, the labor force participation -- mr. nardone, a labor force position rick, please explain this. guest: the take the people who are employed in those who are unemployed and combine them and you get what is called the labour force. divide that by the population in at 16 and over and you're of the force participation rate. is the proportion of the population that is either e

just do not see the engines in other places. but i think technology combined with a great education system and government and business really working together and i thinks this is what we're missing around the world, a model leak as what occurred in the uk or canada or russia might be something we can learn from, but i believe it's the u.s. leads us out. >> wait. follow up on that. you say government business cooperation is what we need. the kind we have in the united kingdom, in canada, and even russia, you find it easier to deal with putin's russia than the united states? >> you are a pro at this and so no matter which way i answer this, i'm in trouble. to that point, each of those leaders understand technology. each of those leaders know if you're an extraction leader live russia, you've got to create stabili stability, keep your young people at home. >> so how badly did we do in the u.s.? when you can contrast your dealings in washington with your dealings in lawn and canada and russia, what's your conclusion? >> i think we have a country that dreams well. i think we've got to b
in not having any of these social issues, whether they were women's reproductive rights, education and other things mentioned in the first debate and then even as an add on in the second debate is that people made the -- i call it the excuse, well, this is about jobs, as if social issues are not also economic issues, especially reproductive choice. that when women have history -- when women have control over their reproductive choice, it also lends to their control over their economic destiny and that's really, i think, what this is about. for a party that portends to say that we want smaller and less government, you know, they certainly want to put an awful lot of area between me and my doctor. >> what i find frustrating, marsha blackburn was on msnbc after the debate. she responded to chris matthews. the other day on twitter i was talking about abortion and a lot of conservatives said, why are you liberals always talking about abortion. conservatives in the republican party don't want to talk about this. ryan had this big sigh and this kind of gathering himself moment after he was asked th
